Global humanitarian and development organization World Relief reacts to today’s (June 26, 2017) SCOTUS opinion issued on refugee resettlement in the United States with the statements from President Scott Arbeiter and CEO Tim Breene.
Global humanitarian and development organization, World Relief pays tribute to World Refugee Day through multiple, coordinated advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill. First Designated by the United Nations on June 20, 2001, World Refugee Day helps shine a light on the current crisis—which has reached its highest point in decades—as well as honoring the strength, courage, contributions and cultures of refugees all-around the world.
“World Relief condemns the use of chemical weapons of any kind and in any situation. We are heartbroken for the Syrian people. Our focus remains the same today as it has been, to serve the most vulnerable in the region, including refugees and those internally displaced by the Syrian civil war.” -Scott Arbeiter, World Relief President
From Turkana County, Kenya—a remote and often forgotten region of Eastern Africa near the border of Ethiopia—CEO of World Relief, Tim Breene, has spent the last week meeting with local churches, pastors, government officials, and World Relief humanitarian workers to personally assess the dire situation on the ground.
